Not So Good

I am not going to divulge into to much information now, but a few years ago I got pretty sick and apparently it's back again. I found out a few days after fathers day and have just been going through the motions of life right now trying to push it to the back of my mind.

Yes, that is not the best/smartest thing to do but it's what I needed to do at the time. I was lucky enough to talk to my husband about everything and it turns out he is able to be here with me when I go through my next round of tests and "next step" talk.

How is that possible, well he gets one more week for his what his guard unit likes to call "your final family week" before they start deployment mobilization. The timing of the overall process stinks, but luckily my mother is able to fly out here and help out if need be.

Once I know results and what has to happen next I will let you know. For now, just need some good thoughts and prayers headed in my general direction.

Thank you all.

This One's For You Dad

My dad and I never had the best father/daughter relationship in the world, but no matter what, I thank and love him for helping me become the woman I am today.

Me and my dad
Thanks dad and happy father's day!

1st Birthday

Based on vet records, today is Antoinette's first birthday. It it hard to imagine when we got her last August, how fast she would grow.

To celebrate, we went to the dog park after I got home from work. Annie then got her own can of wet dog food and then she got a gift from me and my husband {I put it on Skype when she 'opened' it so he could see}. A stuffed goose from PetsMart.

She LOVES it!

So tonight, have a special treat in honor of our sweet and lovable puppy Antoinette.

A Lot of Nothing

It's been one of those weeks where nothing really spectacular has happened and there is nothing really to report. Yes, it's nice, but at the same time I do like a little excitement in my life. Oh well, maybe this week will bring something new and interesting to make up for the last one.

Out of Shape

So remember many posts ago where I was turning over a new leaf and making myself be productive...well, I have been failing at my goal.

How do I know this, there are many answers to that question, but today it finally sunk in. I got home from work around 6:15 p.m. and my husbands puppy {who is now almost a year} Annie, was running around the apartment, Todd {my dog} and I did not know what to do with her. Then I asked myself, when was the last time I took her for a run...

...that was the look I had on my face, blank. I looked at her and said, "Ok pup, let me get changed and lets do this." Her tail started going crazy and she patiently, ok not so patiently waited for me. We ended up running a little over a mile and, oh. my. goodness. I am so out of shape it's not even funny, and let me tell you, it was a good thing that Annie was too.

After a BIG glass of water and a long shower, I sat down, got out my planner {which I have been sadly neglecting} and started writing down my schedule. Not only work, special days, and generic stuff, but a work out schedule and project goals. This is going to help me stay out of my own head when my husband officially has his boots on the ground with his deployment. I mean, if I can get into a good routine now, I should {should being the operative word} be able to keep it up in the long run.

Good thing I have my two furry friends to remind me of the working out part, and to bad it is now summer in Texas. Ha!

Happy Friday

All I have to say is TGIF.

As for me and my weekend, well I am going to do a few key things:

  1. Take the dogs to the dog park in our apartment complex.
  2. Clean the apartment. Including to but not limited to, vacuuming, laundry, cleaning out the refrigerator, and organizing my desk.
  3. Lay out by the pool while hanging with good {new} friends.
  4. Sleep in.
Hope you all have a good weekend too.
